(Tune: "Believe Me if All Those Endearing Young Charms"] 



St. Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling; 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's! how great is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — 

Of earnestness, wisdom, and love. 

H. E. II., 1905

Rev. Aldert Smedes, D.D. 

Founder and First Rector 
IS 10-1877 



'That far-seeing and deep-hearted priest, 
St. Mary's noble founder and wise head. " 



The Founder 



"Under his care, and very much as the 
result of his intelligence, his firmness and 
his tender affection for them, there went out 
from St. Mary's School, Raleigh, every year 
a number of young girls who, in culture, in 
refinement, and still more in elevation of 
moral and religious character, would com- 
pare favorably with the pupils of any other 
institution in this country. He knew not 
only how to teach, but how to govern, and 
to make himself honored as well as loved; 
and to constrain his pupils to feel that the 
years spent under his care were at the same 
time the happiest and most useful of their 
lives. He has gone to his reward, but his 
work remains, and will remain from genera- 
tion to generation." — Bishop Atkinson on 
Dr. Smedes, 1877. 




History of St. Mary's 

St. Mary's School was founded in May, 1S42, by the Rev. Aldert Smedes, D.D. It was 
established as a Church school for girls and was for thirty-six years the chosen work of the founder, 
of whose life work Bishop Atkinson said : "It is my deliberate judgment that Dr. Smedes accom- 
plished more for the advancement of this Diocese (North Carolina), and for the promotion of 
the best interests of society in its limits, than any man who ever lived in it." 

The present location was first set apart as the site for an Episcopal school in 1832, when 
influential churchmen, carrying out a plan ..proposed by Bishop Ives, purchased the present 
"Grove" as a part of a tract of 160 acres, to be used in establishing a Church school for boys. 
First the East Rock House, then West Rock House and the Main Building were built for use 
in this boys' school. But the school, though it started out with great promise, proved unsuc- 
cessful and was closed; and the property passed back into private hands. 

Dr. Aldert Smedes, a New Yorker by birth and education, had given up parisli work on 
account of a weak throat, and was conducting a successful girls' school in New York City when 
in 1S42 Bishop Ives met him and laid before him the opportunity in his North Carolina diocese. 
The milder climate attracted Dr. Smedes; he determined on the effort; came to Raleigh with a 
corps of teachers; gave St. Mary's its name, and threw open its doors in May, 1S42. 

From the first the school was a success, and for the remainder of his life Dr. Smedes allowed 
nothing to interrupt the work he had undertaken. During the years of the War between the 
States St. Mary's was at the same time school and refuge for those driven from their homes. 
It is a tradition of which her daughters are proud, that during those years of struggle her doors 
were ever open, and that at one time the family of the beloved President of the Confederacy 
were sheltered within her walls. 

On April 25, 1S77, Dr. Smedes died, leaving St. Mary's to the care of his son, Rev. Dr. Ben- 
nett Smedes, who had been during his father's lifetime a teacher in the school. This trust was 
regarded as sacred, and for twenty-two years, in which he spared neither pains nor expense, Dr. 
Bennett Smedes carried on his father's work for education. 

During this eventful half-century, St. Mary's was in the truest sense a Church school, but 
it was a private enterprise. The work and the responsibility were dependent upon the energy 
of the Drs. Smedes. Permanence required that the school should have a corporate existence 
and be established on a surer foundation as a power for good, and in 1897 Dr. Bennett Smedes 
proposed to the Diocese of North Carolina that the Church should take charge of the school. 

The offer was accepted; the Church assumed responsibility, appointed Trustees, purchased 
the school equipment from Dr. Smedes and the real property from Mr. Cameron; and in the 
fall of 1897 was granted a charter by the General Assembly. 

By this act of the Assembly, and its later amendments, the present corporation — The Trus- 
tees of St. Mary's School — consisting of the Bishops of the Church in the Carolinas, and clerical 
and lay trustees from each diocese or district, was created. 

The Board of Trustees, by the terms of the charter, is empowered "to receive and hold 
lands of any value which may be granted, sold, devised or otherwise conveyed to said corpora- 
tion, and shall also be capable in law to take, receive and possess all moneys, goods and chattels 
of any value and to any amount which may be given, sold or bequeathed to or for said corpora- 
tion. " 

The Church was without funds for the purchase of the school property, and the Trustees 
undertook a heavy debt in buying it, but the existence of this debt only slightly retarded the 
improvements which were made from year to year in the school buildings and equipment, and 
in May, 1906, the Trustees were able to announce that the purchase debt was lifted and the 
School was the unencumbered property of the Church in the Carolinas. 

Dr. Bennett Smedes, who had long wished for the disposition of St. Mary's that was actually 
effected, continued as Rector after the Church assumed charge, until his death on February 
22, 1S99. To succeed him, the Trustees called the Rev. Theodore DuBose Bratton, Rector of 
the Church of the Advent, Spartanburg, S. C, and a teacher of long training. In September, 
1S99, Dr. Bratton took charge, and for four years administered the affairs of the School very 
successfully. In May, 1903, he was chosen Bishop of Mississippi. In September, 1903. the 
Rev. McNeely DuBose became Rector and the School continued its useful and successful career 
under his devoted care for four years, until he resigned in May, 1907, to resume parisli work. 
In September, 1907, the Rev. George W. Lay assumed the management.

The Alumna? Association of St. Mary's was established in 1880 and meets annually at Com- 
mencement. It has done effective work in aiding the progress of the School and grows yearly 
stronger and more vigorous. 

The Alumna; Chapters meet in then- several towns and cities on November 1st, All Saints, 
which is celebrated as Founders' Day, and on May 12th, the date of the first opening of St. 
Mary's, which is observed as Alumna Day. 

The most important special work accomplished by the Alumna' Association has been the 
establishment of the Swedes Memorial Scholarship, to the memory of the Founder and his son, 
the second Rector of St. Mary's; and the rebuilding of the Chapel. Its present special work is 
the fund for establishing the Mary Iredell and the Kale McKimmon Scholarships.

Establishing the 




Mrs. Iredell 

St. Mary's has been in large meas- 
ure the life-work of Mrs. Mary (John- 
son) Iredell. 

As "St. Mary's girl" "before the 
War" she was inspired with the spirit 
of Dr. Smedes, and later as teacher 
and aid to the Drs. Smedes in a mul- 
titude of ways, she in her turn im- 
parted the spirit to many of the girls 
of later years. 

When the Church purchased the 
School she became Agent of the Trus- 
tees and did invaluable work in rais- 
ing the necessary funds and in building 
up the School. 

She has always been active in Alum- 
nae affairs and on her retirement from 
the active Presidency of the Alumna: 
Association in 1911 was made Honor- 
ary President for life.

Alumnae Scholarships 



To Miss Katie 

To long for truth, to try to realize 

The highest that we see — that is the noblest 

Living, and that, dear friend, in all these years 

Your high sincerity, your love of love, 

Your hatred of deceit and scorn of all pretense 

Have helped us to desire, 

Thinking of you. 

We know that love and truth are real, 
That God and good are the eternal verities, 
Noisy ambition, hard won fame, the wish 
For recognition even of worthy work, 
Beside these vital truths fade into nothingness. 
To do good, and to distribute of your love 
And of your strength to them that need, that 
Has been your life. And with such service, 
God is pleased. 

Emilie W. McVea. 1900.

Hail, St. Mary's 



In a grove of stately oak trees, 

Where the sunlight lies, 
Stands St. Mary's true and noble, 
'Neath the southern skies. 

Far and wide, oh sound her praises, 

Chorus full and free, 
Hail, St. Mary's, Alma Mater, 

Hail, all hail to thee! 

Well we love the little chapel, 

Ever hold it dear; 
Hear the echoes of the music, 

Rising soft and clear. 

Far and wide, etc. 

There the ivy and the roses 

climb the old stone wall, 
There the sweet, enticing bird-notes 

Sound their magic call. 

Far and wide, etc. 

And the bonds of friendship strengthen 

As her beauties charm, 
AYe draw close to Alma Mater, 

Trust her guiding arm. 

Far and wide, etc.

St. Mary's Hymn 

Words by Margaret Cruikshank Music by R. Blinn Owen 

Come one and all, your voices lend, 

In radiant tones our hymn we raise 
To Alma Mater's glory, spend 

Our every effort for her praise. 
With glowing hearts we view these walls, 

To them our girlhood mem'ries cling; 
Yon campus green and well-loved halls, 

To you our grateful hymn we sing. 

Hail, hail, constant, true 

Gleams thy light serene! 
We, thy loving daughters, 

Hail St. Mary's queen! 

Dear Alma Mater, praise we bring 

For friendships nurtured at your side; 
No dearer, sweeter ties will cling 

To any hearts than here abide. 
Inspired by you our thoughts enfold 

A larger aim. In all you've seemed 
To guide our steps, our lives to mold 

To nobler things we had not dreamed. 

Hail, hail, constant, true 

Gleams thy light serene! 
We, thy loving daughters, 

Hail St. Mary's queen!

LASS POE/A 



Classmates of Nineteen Fifteen gather here, 

For us the fire burns lower, tho never dead, 

While we have now one last, long friendly chat, 

Remembering where we in the great hall sat 

As Freshmen, mutely longing for the judgment day, 

And now we'll soon be grad's Commencement Day. 

Who would have thought it? Who would frankly say? 

But memory races onward, why delay? 

Exams! ah, woe is me, midnights perturbed 

And we by clamors of Big Ben disturbed. 

A picture of Knowledge in his cadaverous den 

Looms in the darkness, most inscrutable of men. 

But soon these horrid memories disappear 

And others sweeter push them to the rear, 

Memories of holidays. Oh! such delight! 

And times we've worked and played with all our might ; 

And friends, for there is nothing else can give 1 

Such joy and zeal and life while we still live.

Class Prophecy, 1915 



This tale may seem so wonderful you'll doubtfully receive it — 
But when I've shown the evidence — Ah, then you will believe it! 



Senior Hall, you'll all remember, is a building large and fair 

Where one night I sat and pondered, sorrowful and full of care, 
For the Class of 1915 I must write a prophecy. 

So I racked my brain and pondered— not a thought would come to me! 
Suddtnly appeared a phantom, led me, helpless, down the stair 

Oiu into the frosty darkness through a forest cold and bare 
To a cavern, dimly lighted, where a figure sat enthroned, 

And a throng passed closely 'round him. In my helplessness I moaned, 
'Who is that who's seated yonder, in this dark and gloomy place? 

Who are these who surge about us, thin of form and sad of face?" 
Then the spirit slowly answered — "Over there is Father Time. 

These poor youths and woeful maidens are condemned, in prose or rhyme, 
For each Class of 1915 to compose a prophecy. 

To the home of Time they're summoned with the deepest secrecy, 
From each institute of learning, School or College, far or near. " 

Joyous, then, I hastened forward for his words dispelled my fear. 
As I neared his throne the figure turned and kindly looked on me, 

Said — "My dear, you're very weary, this much from your face I see, 
And I've heard it truly stated on the best authority 

That your Class at old St. Mary's has superiority; 
So I have a little present which I now will give to you." 

In my hands he placed a bundle, then was hidden from my view. 
Once out doors I viewed my present by the dim ana 1 ghostly light. 

Then a Noah's Ark large and gaudy was revealed unto my sight. 
Senior Hall it much resembled, only it was made of tin, 

And a paper fastened to it — "Key to Specimens within." 
From the Ark there stepped two figures, marked "Exhibit A & B" 

And upon the page was written "Gladys Yates and Fairley, D, 
These stout damsels both are wrestlers famous over all the land — 

But they never have decided which one is the master hand." 
Allene Thornburgh, Louise Merritt next came skipping into sight 

Clad in Scottish dancing costumes — I received an awful fright. 
Next appeared two studious maidens, Margaret Mann and Florence Clarke. 

And the paper simply stated— "These two girls have reached their mark; 




^=f=^& EM ^ 3s ^^=\^^ 



They have made St. Mary's famous by their brilliant landscapes done, 

In the broadest Cubist manner — numerous medals they have won." 
Next appeared two haggard figures with two cats of midnight hue, 

Mattie Moye and Margaret Edwards, Ah, I know this can't be true! 
But the paper now proclaims you — how can I the shock sustain? 

"Old maids now, old maids forever, thus you always will remain." 
Then Maude Hotchkiss minces past me, by her side is Edna Mann. 

Rustling flounces, high heeled slippers, parasol and jeweled fan. 
Frivolous from pointed slipper to the highest clustered curl — 

And the paper thus proclaimed them "Each Somebody's Summer Girl." 
Miss Jones-Williams and Miss Northcott — now you quite embarrass me — 

For these two are Congress Women, I'm as honored as can be! 
Frances Strong and Sadie Vinson — Ah, so soon to change your name! 

Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Adams in exchange for boundless fame! 
Carol Collier, Courtney Crowther now appear with Florence Stone. 

For a time, the paper tells me, in society they shone. 
Now they've gone away to China to reform the heathen there, 

Leaving many a youth all hopeless, many a heart in cold despair. 
Lanie Hales and Pencie Warren had not very far to roam — 

Lanie's Dean in some large College, Pencie keeps an Orphans' Home. 
Next appear the strangest figures, Misses King and Garrison — 

In a fort in Honolulu there's a lady garrison — 
Elizabeth is Major-General, Anna Belle a Captain fine. 

In their uniforms all glittering marching in a perfect line. 
Edith Mann and Agnes Barton I am told are on the stage, 

Now in Vaudeville they're dancing, everywhere they're quite the rage. 
Can this now our Helen Peoples and Matilda Hancock be? 

Dressed in black, these stately figures, Ah, what words are these I see? 
1 'Tilda is an undertaker, but ere she can do her part, 

Helen as a learned doctor vivisects the patient's heart." 
But is this Virginia Bonner? Margaret Bottum I declare! 

Riding in that splendid motor — you must be a millionaire! 
So, your looks do not belie you — on the page is written plain 

"By their wealth know that these damsels have not always toiled in vain.' 
Long I waited, all expectant "Now it's certain I'll appear" 

But no figure was forthcoming and these words confirmed my fear — 
"E. A. Lay has met her finish and her fate was sad to see 

For she went away to college; there her classmates did decree 
She must be their own class prophet, so she toiled but toiled in vain 

Then was overcome by labor, died of fever on the brain!" 



Now where she lies let this be written o'er 
"She did her best— Angels could do no more."

History of the Class of 1915 



It's a long way to graduation. 
It's a long way to go; 
It's a long, long way to graduation— 
And no easy road we know. 
But cheer up, Nine teen-Fifteens, 
"Trust, be, nor fear" 
It's a long, long way to graduation — 
But we're almost there! 



It was a "jolly band of Freshmen" that gathered together in the fall of 1911 and chose for 
its motto "Trust yourself, be yourself, and fear not," for their colors, scarlet and gray, and for 
its flower, the poppy. With Margaret Bottum as President, and Mr, Cruikshank as Class 
Adviser, we resolved to promote class spirit as much as possible at St. Mary's, for ours was the 
first class to organize in its Freshman year. 

In a play, "The Obstinate Family, " given by the class in order to get a start financially, it 
was discovered that several of the members had dramatic talent, for the play was a great suc- 
cess. Thus encouraged, we gave a party in honor of the Senior Class to which all the School 
was invited and in which class spirit as exemplified in songs was the chief feature. This was the 
beginning of the "School Party." In this, as in everything we have done we owe a great deal 
to our Class Adviser, Mr. Cruikshank. At this party we presented to the School the first of a 
series of pictures for the school room, a picture of General Lee as a memorial of our class as 
Freshmen. The activities of the year were closed with a Japanese party to the Juniors, our 
sister class. 

September, 1912, found us not forty-five jolly Freshmen but eighteen wise Sophomores. 
We missed Margaret Bottum lout found Helen Peoples worthy of being the leader of even such 
wise ones as we were then (for we were wiser then than we are now, even though now we are 
about to receive our diplomas). Although greatly decreased in numbers our desire "to do 
something" was not in the least cooled, and that year we gave a party to the Senior Class and 
the second "School Party" on much the same line as that of the year before, where we noted with 
pride that "our tiny baby Preps" had grown to be Freshmen. We presented a picture of Wash- 
ington, for such a wise class should not be forgotten. 

How fast September rolls around! We have now reached rather a dizzy height — Juniors— 
a height which only fifteen out of the forty-five Freshmen were able to attain. Of course we 
were sorry to lose the others, for every single one was a worthy member of our class, and I doubt 
if the ones who remained could be called the "survival of the fittest" for all were the fittest to 
start with. 

That year we entertained the Freshmen, (how we pitied them just starting out), and gave 
the third party to the School. It also fell to our lot as Juniors to continue the Junior-Senior 




^F=g==Wff==tf=^ 



€^=F=$g5 s ^nsE^=^ = ^ 



banquet. As you have perhaps already seen nothing gave us more pleasure than entertaining 
(unless in truth it was being entertained,) and so we proceeded to try to make this banquet 
the best that had ever been given by any previous Junior Class to any previous Seniors. 

At last came the time to make the daisy chain for the graduating class, and with a feeling 
of delight we heard our names read out at Commencement as promoted to be Seniors with so 
many added to the list as to make ours the largest class ever to graduate at St. Mary's. 

Dignified Seniors! How we have striven for that title. Helen Peoples was again chosen 
President in nineteen fourteen and we began our career as Seniors. How we wish for some of 
the knowledge we had as Sophomores! How we envy, rather than pity the Freshmen just start- 
ing out. Yet it is undeniably nice to have the privileges of Seniors. The party given to us by 
the Sophomore Class was an occasion of great pleasure and we guarantee that no Senior of 1915 
however far she may roam will ever forget the dinner given by the "Little Men." The Juniors 
almost surpassed us in the banquet they gave in our honor, and our final "School Party" con- 
tinued our past successes. We have had many surprises during our four years experience of 
School life here (including those shocks from the Faculty) but the most surprising event of all 
was when we heard that one of the members of the class was bestowing her affections elsewhere 
than on ourselves. We wish her every happiness. With most classes it is a source of grca^ 
agitation as to who will be the first to get married. From this we have been preserved! 

As we look back on the four happy years spent at St. Mary's, upon our friends and teachers? 
we realize more than ever before how much we owe to our Alma Mater, and it is with a feeling 
of love and loyalty to her that wc say good-bye, each to go her separate .way of life. 

Frances Lambert Stronc. 



Our years of bliss arc almost done — 

(Oh we are a jolly, good class!) 
We've played and we've worked — 

It's been lots of fun 
(Oh we are a jolly good class!) 

Nineteen Fifteen — 
Ah, that is the year for Seniors! 

Nineteen Fifteen — 
[Oh we are a jolly good class!)

All Elfin Dance 



Annie Sutton Cameron, '16 



The wind came over the wild wet moor 

Singing the song of night, 
And the ruffled owl 'neath the misty moon 

Woke from his sleep at its wild, weird tune 
And turned in his laggard flight. 

Forth to the moor creeps the elfin band 

From under the frowning hill, 
To circle in dances wild and strange 

'Neath the lowering sky on the upland range 
To this music wild and shrill. 

They skip with light and airy grace 

Under the shimmering moon, 
And over the moor their flying feet 

Through the sparkling dew keep rhythmic beat 
To the weird wind's mystic tune. 

But the wind drops now to a monotone, 

A cloud sails over the moon, 
And the flying feet on the moor grow still, 

And the elves creep back 'neath the frowning hill 
And the moor lies dark and lone.

Inter-Society Debates 



The Epsilon Alpha Pi and the Sigma Lambda Literary Societies were organized in 1900, 
and in 1902 the first annual Inter-society Debate was held between them. These debates 
became a feature of the work of the societies and were held annually each spring. Dur- 
ing the twelve years ending in 1913, the Sigma Lambda Society won eight debates and the Epsi- 
lon Alpha Pi Society four. 

In 1913 the Alpha Rho was organized as a third society and in order to give it a place in the 
debating arrangement a series of three debates was substituted for the single debate. Each 
Society debates each of the other two, with different debaters in each debate. 

In 1914 in the first series Alpha Rho won from both of the older Societies and Epsilon 
Alpha Pi defeated Sigma Lambda. In 1915, in the second series, Epsilon Alpha Pi won both 
debates and Sigma Lambda defeated Alpha Rho.

"The Hero as Time Keeper" 

(With apologies to Thomas Carlyle) 
Kathehine Wimberly Bourne, '16 



Where would the world be if there was no Hero of Time? The Hero as God, the Hero as 
Prophet, the Hero as Priest have all passed away, but the Hero of Time will never pass away- 
He was the first to exist, and will last through Eternity. Unknowingly, great, strong men wor- 
ship him, have worshiped him throughout all the ages. He is a leader, a true and noble leader. 
With unerring footsteps he goes on, when all else ceases to move. He may even be called an 
outcast, a martyr, battling against the world, yet giving his life to it. At night when only 
wolves prowl, he inarches on, nor does he retire to a lair in the day time. He smiles tolerantly 
at youth's pranks, talks gravely to middle age, and wisely to the old. 

The truest genius, the great man, in this crude, civilized Twentieth Century is Big Ben. 
As prophet, priest and king he stands. Some people say that he is false, insincere, that he 
does not mark the minutes correctly, and thus betrays the trust placed in him. How patiently 
he bears his burdens, and how patiently and uncomplainingly takes the blame for every tardy 
mark, and still goes unswervingly on his way. 

For three years Big Ben lived a quiet, unpretentious life in a little cottage. He did not 
care for fame, but was contented to do his humble duty with an occasional loud alarm. In 
this cottage a young boy followed his advice, and was never late to work; a school teacher had 
but to glance at him for her instructions; and a true hero worshiper, the cook, placed three 
steaming hot meals on the table at exactly the right moment because she trusted him. In this 
quiet seclusion he was contented to live, until with his seeing eye he saw that he had other work 
to do. Then, as always, with his calm, open brow, his round, friendly face, he went where he was 
most needed. To reach this higher position he had to undergo every degrading indignity, was 
ruthlessly packed into a trunk, but for all the jolting of the rough journey, he kept a smooth 
face, held fast to his principles, and was the first with his musical tick to welcome the two dis- 
heartened school girls to the Crow's Nest. There he still lives, sending terror into their hearts 
by his loud proclamations at unearthly hours, as is his appointed duty. A true Hero, he stands 
watch by the bed of two slumbering girls through the silent night, until it is his duty to bring 
them, not gently, not slowly, but with an energetic start out of the fairy land of sleep, back to 
the land of Realty and Facts. Then, when they are in danger of slipping back into that enchant- 
ing, luring land, he steadily, loudly ticks onward, onward, until their very spirits, led on by 
the strength of this man, are obliged to rise and follow where he points. 

It is true that at times he stops, but he, even though an advocate of Eternity, promised no 
one to go on forever. He, a leader in the chaotic space of time, has learned the value of .Silence, 
and so gains the strength which makes him the great Hero of today.

A Iiiddick(uIous) Lay 



There was a maiden most Divine 

Her name was Hose Budd Smith, 

Her hair like Gold did Fairley shine. 

Her skin was White, her eyes were Brown, 

And many a Mann to her had sworn 

She was a Rose without a Thorn. 

But Sparks of Hope in Aiken hearts 
Were turned to lifeless Coles, 
For Blount to her were cupid's darts. 
'Watt Merritt Cann there be in you?" 
Said she, ''No Boone I Cann bestow." 
Wright Hart-Leslie she Badham go.' 

A Huske(y) Cooke rides up the Hill, 
A Welsh Mann Bray(ve) is he. 
He Stammers out no vain (a)Peele, 
She in a (t)Rice is Bourne away. 
'My Stone(y) Hart I yield to you, 
My King of Hearts, Bartholomew."

Life in Senior Hall 



If ever you live in Senior Hall 

You'll know the reason why 
The Wings and the Rocks and all the rest 

Seem very, ver}' dry.

Chorus: 

Dear Senior Hall, where the preplets call, 
And the home of Binks and Pete; 

'Tis the acme of bliss 

At St. Mary's, I wis, 

Exceedingly hard to beat. 



There is music sweet from the Practice Halls 

And the songs of a bird or two. 
While Baby Crook sings a song to the dawn 

The very best he can do. 

— Chorus. 






' Dibs" 



Then there're two 

The very thing i 
Which helps with our popularity 

So that life is one mad rush. 



wings upon the porch, 



The lights burn on until half-past ten, 
In which we are highly blest, 

Though the one superlative use of this 
Is the envy of the rest. 

— Chorus. 



There are ever so many more things to tell 

Of the life in Senior Hall 
But surely you know from the things we've said 

It's the greatest place of all.

Good Bye, School, We're Through ! 

(A Song of Graduation Day.) 
(After "Good Bye, Girls," from "Chin Chin. "J 

We're the happiest girls in all the realm of schooldom, 

We feel as though we'd triumphed over fate, 
We've reached a goal we've ever sought, 
A day of which we've ever thought, 

That wondrous day on which we graduate. 
Of course we've not had only sun and flowers, 

But storms and clouds have braced us in the line, 
Like every other girl we've wasted hours, 

But now all's done — the future looks benign. 
And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of the years gone by: 

Good-bye, School, we're through, 

Dear School, where we have met, 
We say good-bye to you 

With very real regret. 
Our day of jubilation 
Is full of fascination, 

But we'll e'er to you be true; 
Good-bye, School, 

Good-bye, School, we're through. 

We've often read in poems and romances 

That some day in some way, if we but wait, 
The thing we seek both far and wide — 
The thing for which we've ever sighed— 

Will come to us — 'tis so decreed by fate. 
And so it's all come true as in a story, 

Commencement morning with its golden sun 
Has risen upon our sight in all its glory, 

For us there'll never be such other one. 
And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of the years gone by: 

Good-bye, School, we're through, etc-

Appreciation 



(To the tunc of Sari Waltz) 

The time is near for us to graduate; 

So listen here: 

We've lots and lots we hold most dear 

To tell before too late; 

There're certain ones we want it known 

Who've helped us Oh! so much; 

To them for pranks we must atone, 

For there were many such. 

Among them there is one with twinkling eyes 

Full of surprise; 

And one who's tallest of them all 

Who's pow'ful, pow'ful tall; 

And 1 one who's wise — for in his size 

This wondrous secret lies; 

And one whose fun like a cyclone — 

Who else but Mr, Stone? 



There're many others dear to us, whom tha 

We simply must; 

Who are they but the girls themselves 

Who've been so sweet to us? 

So now we thank you, one and all, 

For favors great and small; 

Our love for you we surely know 

Will ever, ever grow. 

We hate to leave you, best of schools, 

For all your many rules; 

We like'to feel your guiding hand 

Stretched forth in wise command. 

Raise your voices loud and strong, 

Sing her praises long. 

School life is the sweetest thing; 

St. Mary's let us sing. 

Courtney Cuowth

May it be a pleasant glimpse into
